Terrence spent over twenty-seven years as a funeral professional. In February of 1993, he started his journey working for one of the largest casket companies in the United States. This was his springboard into a life that led him to finding life in death. As a logistics manager, he was exposed to a number of worlds within the funeral experience, from Chicago to Milwaukee and Green Bay and then Kansas City to Fullerton, California, and finally to Houston, Texas, and then back to Kansas City.
Over those years, he obtained a certificate as a minister after consulting with a number of religious leaders. Terrence decided to grasp the teachings of many of these faith pedagogues and then wrap his own beliefs around them to bring a real-life chronology into a spellbound world of true stories and ideas for the inquisitive minds. His work as a funeral associate helped him understand the inner workings of daily life in the actual funeral home. As a celebrant, Terrence is a professional as he finds the life of those gone before us as lights to our future.
A look into the life and observance of a funeral pro and minister, there are times to laugh and times to cry. I think I’ve read that before.
Terrence brings to life the world of the death-care industry while offering suggestions to us all on how to deal with the stress and the loss of a loved one and how to prepare our own final ride to the other side.
Some stories are heartbreaking and some are humorous, but there is something for everyone in this book. I hope you enjoy reading and maybe get some pointers for your journey to that last day.
